Having a child suffer a birth injury because of an error by a physician or member of the medical staff is truly heartbreaking. While some birth injuries will heal or resolve completely, others will not. They can result in life-long injuries that require expensive care, both medically, and to simply try to live a normal life. Seeking compensation after a birth injury may be necessary to allow for needed care. Some birth injuries result in death to the infant, mother, or both. While no amount of financial compensation can make up for such a loss, it can at least ease a family's financial burden.At Jacob Fuchsberg Law Firm, we understand the effects a birth injury can have on a family and we strive to hold those responsible accountable. This may mean seeking compensation from the at-fault physician or member of the medical staff, the hospital, and more.
